    Basically a slightly more peaty Lagavulin 16. It has a lighter mouthfeel as well.

    Not quite a sipping rum but it works well in cocktails and infusions. In particular infusing it with semi-sweet chocolate for about a week at a 1:1 ratio is fantastic.

    Supper smooth and honestly beats some dark sipping rums. Nose is sweet buttery corn, caramel and cereal. Palate is similar ending a nice mouth warming finish. Best white rum on the market imo.

    This is one of my favorite Japanese whiskies and is by far the best bang for the buck at under ¥3000 (around $28) here in Japan. It honestly competes with my Macallan Rare Cask which is like 10x more expensive. Its more complex and balanced than the Macallan but has a lighter and less rich mouth feel and shorter finish. Notes wise Distillers review in spot on for the most part.
